This collar is made of cotton fabric with a craft-weight interfacing inside for added strength and durability. Because all collars are custom made, the collar you receive may look slightly different than what is shown in the photograph. The metal hardware is made of aluminum, which provides a beautiful mirrored appearance. Be sure to measure your dog's neck for an adequate fit. Before purchasing, measure your dogs's neck circumference while he or she is sitting. Please make sure the measuring tape is not too tight or too loose and is held where your dogs's collar usually sits. We ask that you provide an accurate measurement, so that we may create collar that will fit your dog best. All collars are adjustable in length for a more comfortable and safe fit. This collar can only be made in a 1 inch width, unless you would like to substitute a silver buckle. Pictured is a 1" width collar. We would be happy to combine shipping if you purchase more than one item. Our collars are durable and constructed to last, however, to ensure the safety of your pet, it is important that you periodically check your dog's collar for signs of wear and replace when necessary. As with most fabrics, collars will wear with frequent use and washings. Each customer is responsible for determining the suitability of these products for their individual situation.
